The very first MLP cartoon originally aired on television in 1984, under the simple name of "My Little Pony", presumably due to Hasbro not planning upon MLP making future TV appearances. In 1986, it aired as part of the My Little Pony and Friends TV series, this time under the name of "Rescue at Midnight Castle" but a scene including the 'Little Piece of Rainbow' song had been edited out. Finally, the special was released as "Firefly's Adventure" along with a special edition of Firefly.

It was also released on VHS tape in the UK as "My Little Pony in Dreamland".



  • My Little Pony Theme

My Little Pony, My Little Pony,

Isn't the world a lovely place?

My Little Pony, My Little Pony,

Everywhere you go a smiling face!

Smiling and skipping, merrily tripping,

Watching the morning unfold,

My Little Pony, My Little Pony,

What does the future hold?

Jolly and pleasant, just for the present,

No sign of trouble in sight!

My Little Pony, My Little Pony,

May all your days be bright!

May all your days be bright!

  • Dancing on Air

Firefly: Pony feathers!

They'll be dancing on air when they meet you,

Dancing on air with glee!

Megan: I doubt they'll be celebrating,

When they see it's only me.

Firefly: They'll do cartwheels in air when they meet you,

Their hopes will start to rise!

Megan: From what they're anticipating,

They're in for a big surprise!

Firefly: They'll be floating, lighter than a cloud!

Megan: They'll be floating, laughing right out loud!

Firefly: The sight of you will send spirits flying,

Megan: One or two may burst out crying!

Firefly: Why can't you believe you're gonna be great?

Megan: But Firefly...

Firefly: Trust me!

Megan, you're a dream come true,

That my friends will think so too,

You're the answer to our every prayer!

Megan: Time will tell if I'll come through,

But just imagine if I do!

Firefly: They'll be dancing...

Megan: Prancing...

Firefly/Megan: Dancing on air!

  • Call Upon The Sea Ponies

Sea Ponies: Shoo-bee-doo, Shoo-Shoo-bee-doo!

Call upon the Sea Ponies when you're in distress,

Helpful-as-can-be ponies, Simply signal "SOS"!

If you find you're cast adrift, and haven't got an oar - oh!

Count upon the Sea Ponies, they'll see you to shore!

Shoo-bee-doo, Shoo-Shoo-bee-doo!

Seawinkle: Are you sinking fast?

Wavedancer: Had some nasty shocks?

Sealight: Feeling like all hope is gone, and washed up on the rocks?

Sea Ponies: Washed up on the rocks!

Shoo-bee-doo, Shoo-Shoo-bee-doo!

Call upon the Sea Ponies when you're in distress,

Helpful-as-can-be ponies, Simply signal "SOS"!

If your rudder runs aground, or seaweed holds a grip - Kelp!

Count upon the Sea Ponies - they'll see you get help!

Sea Ponies, Sea Ponies,

Simply signal SOS, signal SOS!

Sea Ponies, Sea Ponies,

Simply signal SOS, signal SOS!

Oh, yes!

  • Little Piece of Rainbow

The Moochick It's got to be around here somewhere!

Somewhere there's a little piece of rainbow,

I save it for a rainy day!

It's either underneath the rug, or in the cupboard - ugh, a bug!

But have no fear, I'll find it right away!

Wait until you see this piece of rainbow,

It's brighter than a peacock's plume!

It's ocean blue and sunrise pink,

I left it by the sink, I think...

Or was it in the closet with the broom?

Perhaps we ought to try the other room.

That piece of rainbow must be hiding someplace,

Search every nook and cranny, high and low!

Megan: You'd think that with a rainbow, there'd be some trace!

Twilight: But not a gleam!

Bow Tie: Not a glimmer!

Firefly: Not a glow!

Moochick: Oh, where'd I put that little piece of rainbow?

I ran across it just last week!

It might be in the flower pot!

My goodness gracious, no, it's not.

That piece of rainbow's playing hide and seek!

I'm sorry but it seems...

I'm sorry but it seems we're up the creek!

Megan: You're not giving up, are you?

Moochick: Might as well, looked everywhere, absolutely no place else it could have...

Wait a moment!

Beg your pardon!

Silly me, come and see, it's in the garden!

This is where I put that piece of rainbow,

It's buried here beneath the ground.

I left it in the flower bed,

It's how I am - I plan ahead!

I knew that here I'd find it safe and sound.

A lesson for you all...

When hope seems past recall...

A piece of rainbow always can be found!

  • Closing Credits

My Little Pony, My Little Pony,

Isn't it time we started home?

My Little Pony, My Little Pony,

Who ever dreamed how far we'd roam?

Crickets are calling, evening is falling,

Over the meadow and glen,

My Little Pony, My Little Pony,

When will I see you again?
